Wells starts camping schedule

Jeff Wells is a 6-2, 200-pound quarterback prospect from Lakwood (Wash.) Lakes, and Jeff has been a busy guy this spring. He recently participated at the Northwest NIKE camp and also the Bethel passing league tournament. A lot of players would take some time off to enjoy the summer, but Wells sees an opportunity to earn a college scholarship playing football. One way he can get his name out is by going to college football camps.

"I came in and felt good," Wells told Dawgman.com when we caught up with him at the NIKE camp in Eugene. "I tested well. I messed up a couple of times and had to shake it off. I did OK. You really don't know just how much competition you have until you get to a place like this and see all the guys matched up."

Jeff tested well, running a 4.6 40 and 4.3 shuttle, repping 185 pounds 11 times and jumped 30 inches in the vertical leap. The NIKE camp showed Wells what he's going to have to work on, but more importantly he became versed in how camps work. "You have to soak it all in," he said. "They like a rapid pace and you've got to be able to get in there and do your thing, and if you make a mistake you have to shake it off. But it was a lot of fun. It was worth it to come down and compete."

Much like Tacoma Baptist's Josh Bousman, Wells has been hearing from the Nevada Wolfpack. "Nevada told me that they are going to wait and see if any bigger schools take me, and if they don't they said they definitely want me," he said. "It's kind of an offer, but they didn't go all the way. Oregon State said I'm still on their top-10 list. I want to go to Washington, and they are still sending me letters. Nevada is calling me and Idaho is calling me too."

Wells also updated us on where he'll be seen this summer. "I'm going to Washington's camp and Idaho's camp," he said. "I might be going to Cal's camp too. And our team camp at Eastern (Washington)."
